Ship was right last episode on nintendo. When most console lauched the systems offered a huge leap in power. I remember when the super nintendo launched. Nintendo was like their system can do 16000 colors our can do 32000 or something to that effect.
. Then during the life of the system the console would really start to show it's strength. Like Mode 7 etc. The controller was revolutionary. One actually built for gamers.
I remember the weeks of hype with sneak peaks of an awesome games like Super Metroid showing off the power of their console. I really miss them days. I have a wii u deluxe and it is unopened. I also believe the wii was the most sold least played console in the history of console gaming.
Nintendo needs to go big like microsoft or go the way of the dinosaur like sega. I am still trying to find out how nintendo was humbled. If you would have told me during the super nintendo era that they would be okay putting out weaker consoles I would have told you you were crazy.
IMO they never recovered from the n64 debacle. Sorry for the rant but it would be nice to seee nintendo seriously back in the game.
